In addition to varied services, the new facility will also provide customer-specific assembly of pressure boosting systems.
Wilo SE has inaugurated its new facility – Wilo Middle East – in the Jebel Ali Free Zone (JAFZA) in Dubai.
Headquartered in Germany, the company is one of the leading manufacturers of pumps for heating, cooling and air-conditioning, water supply and sewage treatment. The inauguration of the new facility was attended by Mr. Thomas Kubbe, Senior Vice President Sales Region EMEA, Dr. Amer Mokbel, Sales Area Manager Gulf and other senior managers from WILO SE, as well as Dr Mohammed Al Banna, Vice President, Commercial Sales, UAE Region from Jafza.
Dr Al Banna said: “We congratulate Wilo on the opening of its new facility and welcome them to the JAFZA community. JAFZA extends its complete support to you and hopes to play a part in facilitating your growth and help you realise your aspirations for the region.”
Simon Mrad, Managing Director, Wilo Middle East FZE, said that municipal water markets will probably increase the pump business in the region by 50%. He continued: “With growing markets in building technologies and the introduction of high-efficiency pumps, the customers’ needs for technical support and service became more urgent. Therefore, in 2006, the Wilo Group decided to open its own subsidiary for the Middle East markets with head office in UAE and branch office in Saudi Arabia. Recently, Wilo was appointed as the exclusive supplier to the Dubai Metro strategic project due to high responsiveness, technical elaborateness and excellent after-sales support.”
Apart from services to investors, consultants, trade and craftsmen in the Arab countries, the new facility will also take care of the customer-specific assembly of pressure boosting systems which are characterised by highest comfort and low power consumption.
